A safari in the Masai Mara National Reserve is a true bucket list experience. The levels of wildlife in this region are astonishing, and include the largest population of lion in Kenya and all the Big Five. It’s also home to one of nature’s most remarkable events – the Great Migration.
Set within a natural playground of rolling grasslands, acacia trees and riverine forest, the Masai Mara offers a wildlife experience like no other. As well as being a top reserve to track the big cats, visitors to the Mara can encounter spotted hyenas, giraffes, gazelles, elephants, buffalo, black rhino and much more. Bird watching is also very rewarding, with approximately 450 different species sighted from hornbills to long-crested eagles.
If you’re looking for a unique way to witness the migration, why not opt for a hot air balloon safari which will give you a stunning view over the plains.
